What is the company culture like at D&S Community Services? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Company Culture

1 = Not at all positive House manager kept mess going on in the home. She did not spend the guys money properly. She used there money for her on personal use.

Office / Work Environment

work environment was always stressful

Workplace Safety

I was never trained for this home. The house manager left me at the home by myself on m,y first day.

Challenging Work

House manager made it a hostile work environment

Suggestions for improvement

  • First off the head office needs to come and replace the office personnel. Until then that place will never change.

What I like about the company

There was never anything positive about D & S Community Services.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the way the coordinator of the homes is upholding house manager in there wrong doing. She told the unemployment commission a lie on me. There was alot of times the guys didn't have any food so I would spend my own funds to make sure that the consumers were ok. It's pitiful when no one ever said thank you for buying food looking out for the guys well being. So that let's you know that the office personnel and house manager never cared about the guys well being. They sure be held accountable for the wrong doing that they done. Thank You and I was fired for doing the right thing. The house manager also curse me and called me out of my name. I was told to write out an incident report and that we would have a meeting about it. I tried to discuss it in the meeting that I didn't know we were having and was cut off and blew away from the conversation everytime.

Company Culture

Gossip is a HUGE issue

Support from management

Gossip is a HUGE issue

Challenging Work

The work itself is fairly easy

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treating everyone fairly, communication

What I like about the company

The clients are the only positive expirence

What I dislike about the company

Management. They lack communication within themselves and to the other employees. They tend to pick out employees they like and faze out those they don't. They need to give employees more than 18 hours notice of important changes such as changes in shifts for example when they are looking for someone to take your current shift

Suggestions for improvement

What I like about the company

The company has foster care and group homes for disabled. Met a few good people.

What I dislike about the company

You start with the company thinking you are helping the disabled or mentally impaired, but that is not the case. The executives do not listen to any issues. A few people work hard, but many others are there for social hours and to get paid for watching movies.

  • I love my company I'd just pay the dsp's more an hour.

What I like about the company

I habe made many friends and have seen many good people promoted. It's been a pleasure so far.

What I dislike about the company

I would like to see wage increases for all dsp's. As hr, it's difficult to ask someone to care for someone else when they can serve fries for several dollars more an hour.
